PhD candidate, School of Veterinary Medicine & Science 

My name is Colman and I initially moved to Nottingham to undertake my MRes degree in 2015. Following completion of that degree is started my PhD as part of the BBSRC funded Doctoral Training Program working on bovine tuberculosis in England. My aim as the Graduate Centre Coordinator here is to enhance the postgraduate experience on Sutton Bonington as much as I can and facilitate the maximum enjoyment and professional development you receive during your postgraduate education here. I look forward to seeing all of you over the year!

You will find me most days in the Graduate Centre in C15, if the door is open then feel free to come chat to me! At all other times drop me an email at I hope to see many of you at the various PG orientated events I will be running over the course of the year and if you have any ideas about what you’d like out of events or your graduate centre please let me know!
